Behind us are the days when Dave’s Quality Meat would get together to do up Swoosh styled classics, with the New York skate shop reorienting their output more towards the core skate crowd over the past couple of seasons. Key in that process has been their ongoing partnership with Vans, one that has resulted so far in the opening of the Vans DQM General store and plenty of great lowkey collabos. Next in line is the colorful DQM x Vans Harrington Lo Madero pack shown here, a trio of slim silhouettes bearing some bright spring colors along with the DQM x Vans General Store logos down into the plaid insoles. Hit the jump to take a look at the promo video along with shots of the whole collection and pick them up this Friday, April 27th at the DQM x Vans brick and mortar spot or in their webshop.

When the Vans DQM General opened in New York this September, it represented a first in America, but a significant second for each of the respective brands. For Vans, it was the second collaborative retail location they opened, following the OTH location in Montreal, and for DQM, their second retail spot overall after the original Dave’s Quality Meat in New York’s East Village. Add a bit of fuzzy math into the mix and you get The General’s first collabo release with 96 pairs each spread across three models. The DQM x Vans ’First Issue’ pack consists of natually tanned monochromatic vegetarian leather takes on the Era, Chukka Decon and Mid Skool ’77, and you can see each of them in more images after the jump. These’ll be out for Black Friday, and you can expect Sneaker News to reiterate that phrase for a variety of additional releases between now and then, so be sure to check back with us for more updates. via SF
